Thanks for Your Patience, Update on New Telephone System
Thank you for your patience as we continue to work out the kinks of our new phone system. We receive on average of 1,000 calls every day and are diligently working to make sure your call gets to the appropriate person.
New Phone Menu
Now when you call our practice, you will be greeted with a message and several phone prompts. To help direct you to the right place, please review the selections and their direct extensions below.
|To schedule an appointment – Once selected and after 90 seconds on hold, patients have the option of 1) entering their phone number for a call back, 2) leaving a voice message or 3) holding on the line for the next available operator. The preferrable option is pressing 1 for a call back. This allows you to still maintain your position in queue but be free to attend to other things rather than waiting on hold.||Press 1 or dial extension 8000|
